4,095.2 metres above sea level. Temperature ranging between 3°C to 15°C. 20th tallest mountain in the world. Mount Kinabalu bears a symbolic representation of Malaysia and claims the title of a UNESCO World Heritage site. And what am I hoping to do on July 23? Summit it for a cause!
This summer, we will summit Mount Kinabalu in support of cancer patients - every dollar you donate goes to The Max Foundation and is greatly appreciated! Join our journey as we climb the fourth tallest peak in southeast Asia!
On July 20, 2017 I will be embarking on a 3-day journey of a lifetime for the betterment of cancer treatment globally, and in the interest of saving lives. I am climbing this mountain and would greatly appreciate your support for kids and cancer across the world.
When Tony told me his story, that he figured out that something was wrong with him 10 years ago while attempting to climb Mt KK, I knew right then that we need to go back and climb it together. For people living with a life threatening condition, and especially cancer, everyday life is a mountain to climb. And for those of us doing our best to help, overcoming obstacles is an everyday thing too. So it is only fitting that we should climb this mountain, literally, together, given that we have been climbing it, figurativelly for a decade. This is officially my birthday campaign this year and I HAVE JUST CLIMBED this mountain one week before my 59th birthday. I am a first timer and it was hard, but I did it, and so did Tony.
Hello All! Together with fellow survivors and supporters, we are raising funds for Max Family so that our outreach activities can be widened to include patients who spend days traveling just to get treatment; patients who are so knocked out by treatment that they are unable to care for themselves; and to caregivers to support them so that they can continue giving care and support to patients. Your contribution in every form will spur us up Mt K with Max, CML & me!
We have this year 2017 plan a fundraising event of Climbing Mount Kinabalu, Sabah (the highest mountain in South East Asia) from 20th to 24th July for Max Family Society in partnership with The Max Foundation.
Come and join us climb Sabah- Borneo highest mountain - Low’s Peak (4,095.2m). I am a cancer survivor since 2006. The fundraiser will help support cancer patients in Malaysia. Treatment involves more than just medical care. The Mt Kinabalu climb is also to create awareness to cancer patients/survivors that you are not alone and you can still live a normal life just like anyone else. Living testimonials are the primary source of emotional support. For those not affected or living with cancers, you still exist in the connected circle we call life."Cancer touches everyone, Our future together". I will be climbing with my daughter. Your contributions to the cause are welcome.
Despite growing up with plenty of access to and experience with the great outdoors in the Pacific Northwest, I've never climbed a mountain - nor, to be honest, have I really wanted to. That is all about to change in 2017!
